For a change we have a Gene Autry film which contains more western action - even if a lot of it is riding back and forth - than music. The film starts and ends with Autry singing and he also sings whenever it is least appropriate - sometimes Burnette sings with or without Autry. Here Autry is up against modern cattle thieves - they use short wave radio to communicate, an airplane to spot cattle herds and quick butchering and refrigerator trucks to haul the beef away - and no one seems to see this procession of trucks even in broad daylight. But eventually Autry figures it out and then its just a wrap up job. Burnette plays it all for laughs and gives us a lot of his patented bellowing when scared. Ann Rutherford is the beautiful and feisty newspaper editor who butts heads with Autry - you know that means they are destined to fall in love. The film uses 9 stuntmen and 1 stunt woman - mostly for hard riding plus a few Autry jumping off of a horse to get the bad guy riding next to him. IMDb says its a 61:00
film, but we get 55:00.
